These big gigs in stadiums, if they go right they're one of the most extraordinary nights of your life. If they go wrong they're a misery." -- Bono


by sledge2018

The band looks old and tired.  The world's greatest live band did not have its greatest night.  After an emotional opening with Love Is All We Have Left, they launched into a chest pounding version of The Blackout, which also included great screen effects.  After that it was all downhill.  They recycled many songs and screen graphics from the Innocence tour which we have already seen before.  The Edge was off his game.  Bono had to restart a song because Edge had the wrong tempo, and he was playing the wrong chords for half of "One", a song they have played zillions of times live.  Towards the end of the show Adam's bass was feeding back and drowning out the songs.  The album responsible for this tour is one of U2's best, but the show is not up to the standards we have come to expect.  The cutting edge technology, energy, passion and excitement were all in short supply.  The night was really a let-down.
